Ang Lee, best known for taking Heath Ledger’s and Jake Gyllenhaal’s off-screen romance and putting it on screen in Brokeback Mountain, says that his new film, Lust, Caution, won’t be a hit in the United States. Lee cited its pace and language as the main deterrents for American audiences. Also, the NC-17 rating That might be a problem too.
Hollywood trade publication Variety has reported that “Lust, Caution,” which won the top Golden Lion prize at the recent Venice Film Festival, features lovemaking involving “provocative” sexual positions, implied oral sex and full frontal female nudity.
You, sir, have underestimated the American moviegoer’s taste in fine cinema. Lovemaking involving “provocative” sexual positions, implied oral sex and full frontal female nudity? My friend, you had me at lovemaking. Now, change it to Lust, Caution, Gun and you’ll have another Oscar on your hands.
